Do You Have Multiple Piercings or Tattoos?

via Unreality Mag

This morning, in the office, we got to talking about piercings vs. tattoos.  Personally, I was that kid who was terrifed of getting shots and blood drawn (ok, I still am) and only ever got my first holes in my ears pierced.  I’m also afraid of making a decision now that will literally leave a permanent mark  on my body.  However, I know plenty of people with multiple piercings/tattoos and love them.  Which brings me to our poll:

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

If you do have piercings or tattoos, how old were you when you got them?  What did you get?  Why did you get it?

      As soon as I turned 18 I got my eyebrow pierced. Because I thought I was so punk rock. Or something.

      I thought I would take it out before college. And then after I graduated. And then after I got my first job. But alas, it is still in my eyebrow, despite being on my fourth full time job since college. I think i am holding on to my youth…

      I have three on each lobe, my left helix, my right industrial, my tongue, and my nose. Navel is next on the list, followed by some sort of new ear project. I got the lobes at 7, 12 and 14 (one set each year). The helix and industrial were done on my 18th birthday. My tongue was done a couple months later, and my nose was done just before I turned 19 (my current age).

      My tattoos were both done within the last six months. I have a Gemini symbol with flowers on the back of my shoulder, and a music note behind my left ear. I definitely want more at some point.

      I have 26 piercings (All but three are in my ears) and seven tattoos. I started the piercings at about 27, with a tongue piercing. That didn’t go so well in that I lost one of the balls so had to let it go. I replaced it a few years later, and at about 34, started doing my ears. I now have 23 total. I got my first tattoo at about 33 or so. I chose to wait ten years because I wanted to be sure of what was on my arms, since those are pretty permanent, while earrings can be removed, and the holes usually close and go away (although… my first set of holes managed to remain open for a good 20 years without me wearing anything in them, so… yeah.)

      I got them simply because I like them. Nothing philosophical about it.
